Offline Vector based Map App using Ionic?


#1

Hi Everyone,

We are investigating using Ionic for an offline map based application and see the use of Leaflet and offline tile based maps which is a fine approach for limited areas, but for larger areas tile storage quickly becomes prohibitive. In native mobile development for this use case vector maps are preferred.

However has anyone attempted to use offline vector based maps (such as Mapsforge for Android) in Ionic? At first glance this would seem ambitious because vector based maps require more graphics / rendering processing power on the mobile client and (not sure what access Ionic/Cordova has to OpenGL?) and so more typically suited to native development, so we are keen to hear of any offline vector based mapping Ionic apps.

Cheers,

Adam
